PSA: Ji Chang Wook and Hwang In Yeop are both set to star in an upcoming drama together! Yes, you read that right. Confirmed by Netflix Korea last April 15, the in-demand heartthrobs were officially casted in the series The Sound of Magic, which will be produced by JTBC—the very same company that brought us The World of The Married, Welcome to Waikiki, Itaewon Class, and more. While there’s no confirmation on the exact release date yet, there’s certainly so much to look forward to and we couldn’t be more excited for what’s to come.
Here’s everything we know so far about "The Sound of Magic":
1. It’s a musical fantasy drama.
The original story for the series was first popularized as a Naver webtoon titled Annarasumanara in 2010. Before being licensed into a series though, it was first adapted as a stage-play. With regards to its plot, the tale is said to involve an interesting fusion between music and magic. Sounds like the perfect watch if you’re up for a whimsical fantasy drama!
2. Its crew has worked on some of your favorite K-dramas
If you loved Itaewon Class, you’ll be delighted to know that the same producing director, Kim Sung Yoon, is onboard for this series. Alongside him to pen the script is writer Kim Min Jung who previously worked on Who Are You: School 2015.
Fun fact: Sung Yoon and Min Jung have actually already worked together before in the highly beloved historical drama Love in the Moonlight. It's safe to say, we're expecting good things from this seasoned tandem.
3. It has a handsomely gifted cast
Spearheading the lineup is none other than hallyu actor Ji Chang Wook who's set to play a peculiar magician named Lee Eul. Opposite him in what could possibly be her big break is twenty-four year old rookie actress Choi Sung Eun, who will take on the role of Yun Ai. A young girl with a particularly unfortunate life, everything changes for her when she crosses paths with Lee Eul, who begins to stir up her everyday with magic. Last but definitely not the least is True Beauty’s Hwang In Yeop, acting the part of Yun Ai’s classmate, Na Il-deung. The character is described to be studious yet antisocial before he joins Yun Ai and Lee Eul as they discover the “fun of magic.”
Knowing all this, we're definitely counting the days until we can finally stream The Sound of Magic on Netflix soon.
